Cloud Computing as a Competitive Advantage: Change at the Speed of Business

Cloud Computing in the form of the Business Operations Platform

SYS-CON Events announced today that more than 40 Cloud technology providers, as well as Virtualization and SOA companies will exhibit at the upcoming 1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo (www.CloudComputingExpo.com), November 19-21, in San Jose, California. The conference will be colocated with SYS-CON's 4th International Virtualization Conference & Expo (www.VirtualizationConference.com)

1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo will take place on November 19-21, 2008, at the Fairmont Hotel, downtown San Jose, CA

The pace of change in modern business is breathtaking. Successful companies are embracing change by innovating aggressively, mastering operational efficiency, and leveraging new regional and global business opportunities. This session addresses key ways that Cloud Computing, in the form of the Business Operations Platform (unifying BPM Architecture, Lifecycle and Teams) is a competitive edge for businesses. Companies can now respond faster to rapidly changing business conditions, drive the most value out of their existing systems and put existing and new processes in the direct control of the business - allowing them to achieve true alignment of business and IT.

Speaker Bio:
Michael Cupps is VP Online Markets & The Process Factory at Cordys. He has been in the enterprise software market for 20 years with companies such as webMethods, McAfee, Vignette and several start ups. His strong background in Business Process Management (BPM) and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) perfectly positions him as advocate for Cordys' vision of powering processes in the Cloud as self-assembled mashup applications provisioned on-the-fly.

Free Cloud Computing Bootcamp on Nov 20, 2008, in San Jose, CA
1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo will offer a free "Cloud Computing Bootcamp" (http://cloudbootcamp.sys-con.com) on the second day of the conference, Thursday, November 20, 2008. Cloud computing is an opportunity for business to implement low cost, low power and high efficiency systems to deliver scalable infrastructure. But moving to a cloud infrastructure is not necessarily as nice and clean as the providers would want us to think. With cloud infrastructures problems don't magically go away, they just shift: you don't have scalability or storage problems any more, but you need constantly monitor the cloud and your application in it. In this compelling, intensive, one-day, hands-on training program, you will learn what it takes to take advantage of the Cloud - and whether it is right for you in the first place.

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved.
